Here are all of the libraries of note we’ve spotted since the last round-up back in the beginning of April…in the order of most recent first (working from here…so forgive me if I’ve confused dates).
Presenting Machine Guns HD Pro Sound Effects Library. This 24-Bit/96kHz collection features four fully automatic weapons recorded at a wide open 400 acre ranch in North Idaho. With a mountain ridge in front and open field behind, the guns generated a breathtaking echo while at the same time the “close up and personal” microphones capture the intense muzzle blast and mechanics of each weapon in stunning detail.

April has ended and May has begun. No matter what we do, or how we may try to control it,
time continues to march forward at its own pace…regardless of our needs or wants. Last month, we had a very specific theme. While there was ample opportunity to explore different approaches and uses, everything focused on a particular type of toolset. We thought it would be interesting to follow it up with a featured topic that is open to a much wider range of interpretations. So, we’ve selected “Time” as our theme for this month.
Sample rate and playback speed, time management skills, pacing and flow, tools and plug-ins that operate in the time domain…these aren’t subjects you would normally associate with one another, but they are all unified when placed under the umbrella of “time.” When you think of the word “time” in relation to our work, what do you immediately think of? And a better question…will you step forward to share that thought here with the rest of the community?
If you’d like to contribute to this (or next month’s) theme, contact shaun [at] designingsound [dot] org. Our theme next month will be “dynamics.”
Well, the flood gates certainly opened up at the end of the month…didn’t they? We’ve got a lot of people to thank for their guest contributions to April’s theme (and a few welcomed off-topic contributions). So, I’m going to get right to it!
A hearty “Thank You” goes out to…
